The Art of Negotiation

My son is a master negotiator. He starts out small.

"Mom, can I have just one Oreo cookie?"

So I think--the girls are in the tub so this won't turn into a cookie fest. He did eat his breakfast pretty good so why not.

"Sure. One cookie."

**Crunch*** He already had the cookie in his hand because he knew I would say yes.

Two minutes later...

"Mom, can I have just one more cookie because they're so small?"

This same thing happened on Sunday. We had the BELOVED Samoa's in our house. I did NOT want to share. My son was asking for one ALL day. He came downstairs,

"Mom, can I have a cookie?"

Me: "No"

"Oh, well I already had two."

Kids. SO fun.
